HC Deb 12 February 1934 vol 285 c1596W

asked the Minister of Agriculture the appreciation which has taken place in the annual value of Crown lands since the date when they were taken over from the Crown by the State?


The land revenues of the Crown in England and Wales were first surrendered to Parliament in the year 1760. Subsequently the land revenues in Ireland and Scotland were also surrendered, and the process was not completed until the year 1834. In that year the gross income was approximately £300,000. In the year ended 31st March, 1933, the gross income was £1,791,754.
